My four year old daughter is enamored with princesses...like many girls her age. She wanted to do a Cinderella pumpkin from the start. I browsed the web for ideas and came up with this simple version. I let her decide on all the color choices and she did all the painting. I did help with the yellow dots around the windows and door.
She loves her pumpkin and is outside playing with it and the dolls constantly! So cute! It'll be fun to do another one next year...maybe with more detail. Wonder how many years we'll do a version of a Cinderella pumpkin? A new tradition perhaps?
